of the supreme court, certainly intellect, experience, obs vance of the rule of law and precedent. but the supreme court is the final word of what is the law of the land and so therefore i don't want to see more who say that discrimination against women and discrimination based on gender is not protected against under the constitution. when i go by the supreme court on my way to work every day over the mantle it says equal justice under law. it does not say equal justice for some people in america and not for others. and as it relates to row v. wade, i support that. i support a woman's right to choose. my opponent i don't know which view he has. last year he was prolife, now he's pro-choice. >> senator business and industry complain that the 2010 fair act will be expensive and cut into profits and slow the economic recovery. how do you respond to critics who argue that the economic burden of implementing this policy will wind up costing even more american jobs? >> first of all, the reality is what did he have before the law, double premium increases, unsustainable for a family who

of the book, quote, by demanding that roberts kill our entire health care law, the four conservative justices prompted them to look for some kind of middle ground. roberts felt obligated to protect the institutional interests of the court, not just his own philosophical agenda. now, doing that, he uncost merrily went against the conservatives, members of the court. >> he certainly did and count me among those who are shocked and predicted wrongly. justice sees himself as the chief justice, as the embodiment of the court and after citizens united, after bush v. gore to do it a third time in a relatively short period of time would have damaged the court and romney found that middle ground under the taxing power of congress and he upheld the law but don't think that john roberts has suddenly. >> a mentor of mine said, be when he said that, he did not find it, they had the right to deal with interstate commerce. >> right. >> but that they could deal with tax law, most of the civil rights legislation was built around interstate commerce. >> it sure was. >> that is not a good sign for some of the s

[laughter] i am saying he could certainly appreciate the similar upbringing in that respect but i hearken back to the same point. i think local politics and urban politics to me are the center of democracy. truly the greatest amount of opportunity is available there and i would love to hear other peoples comments on that but to me that is the importance of governance. >> so i guess i will pose one question to you and we have people ready to ask questions already. one of the things that you often hear millennials interacting with is media and technology and social media. we heard earlier today one of our expert said the social media sites are the village squares for civil discourse these days. so to hear from both of you how you are using media, social media and tech knowledge he. to relate and contact constituent. >> to some extent in my opinion sometimes if i don't post it on facebook is as if it didn't happ
. he became president of the harvard law review, okay? i was in law school at the same time barack obama was. i was at the university of virginia school of law. i was on the law review. i wasn't the president. nevertheless, when you rise to that rank at harvard law school, you rise to that rank because you are smart and you know your stuff. well, last night barack obama showed up at this debate as the guy who kind of blew off studying until the last minute and maybe pulled an all nighter and thought he was going to get by on his whit and maybe a little bit on his charm. last night that wasn't good enough up against the guy who prepares to the hilt for a presentation with investors or in this case with the american voters. it didn't work. >> bill: i will be on with ms. laura on her radio program tomorrow. >> yeah. here we go. >> bill: it will be interesting. jon stewart talking trash on gma this morning about me. the tip 60 seconds away. >> factor tip of the day in just a moment. but first, first-day sales of "killing kennedy," more than one one -- more than 100,000 copies. thanks f
lawsuits pending that could negate some of the new laws that are intended to require photo ids for voters? >> first observation is, in terms of the case in maryland, that was one misguided example. never should have happened. the race was not that close. it was a huge mistake by that individual and he paid for it with a time in prison. in terms of your concerns about voter i.d., and having to show id, i live in virginia and just got my voter card. they allow any kind of thing, a utility bill, or anything like that. it is a lot easier to vote then to get on an airplane. if you are worried about fraud, i think that these are reasonable requirements. >> in terms of polling, to the extent that both firms can, we try to pull a registered voter list. registered voters who have presumably -- i mean, we try to sample who have not only registered -- people who have not only registered but voted in the last election. >> in a lot of states, they have to have a photo id. how do you account for that? >> our callers asked you to show them your folder id -- your photo i.d. >> not a lot that you can do.

. >> reporter: and on the president's health care law, romney usually simply says this. >> if your priority is jobs, you got to get rid of obama care, and i will. >> reporter: but last night, when asked what he would replace it with? >> in fact, i do have a plan that deals with people with pre-existing conditions, that's part of my health care plan. >> reporter: now, we have asked the romney campaign repeatedly if under romney, would there be a federal law protecting people who don't have jobs with pre-existing conditions, allowing them to get insurance, and we've been told that there would be no federal law, it would be turned over to the states. diane, i also wanted to point out that we hired a lip reader overnight, to look at that moment on the stage, president obama and mitt romney on the stage. look at this tonight. president obama walking up to mitt romney, saying, good job, romney saying, thank you, thank you. the president saying, good, good, we'll do more of this. it would seem to appear that one of those men knew who won last night, diane. >> okay, david muir reporting in. >>> tim
to vote. in the real world it is a consequence of what people believe the law is in pennsylvania. before the ruling this week, when the law stated that you did need an id to vote. here is what votespa.com told voters. here is what the splash page website greets voters as of earlier this week. that small print after the judge's ruling, after it became clear that you do not need to have an id to vote in pennsylvania, you are welcome at the polling place, here is how they changed the website, you ready? look at that difference. oh yes, there it is. a change in the small print. but the impression is pretty much the same. if you don't have a driver's license don't show up. this is going on in other states. states where they were not able to change the law. where there is still an effort to make people think they need an id to vote. in idaho, here is what the state is distributing. bring your id and vote. you hear about things like this every election year. it is another thing for it to be your state. your state using your tax dollars to miss inform you about your rights. so you decided to cal
